Well… it is finally happening! I originally won a trip to BC in spring of 2020… a friend had the winning bid at a charity auction and gave the trip to me as a gift. I was so happy - and then… COVID. So Keeneland 2020 was a no go. Del Mar 2021 was advised against by the guy who is hosting me - as he said there were limited services and it would not be the same as a full-blown BC. He suggested we wait a year as it would be back at Keeneland which is where I wanted to go to begin with! So here we are in 2022 - and I am off to Lexington, KY on Thursday, November 3 before BC starts on Friday.
It was supposed to be a trip for 2 - but any friend who had any interest had conflicts of some kind - so in the end I told my host it would just be me. I have had my hotel reservations and airline reservations sent to me - no info on actual grandstand tickets yet. I am SO excited!! My first actual holiday since 2018!! Yeah, it is only 4 days - but it is a holiday!!
Is anyone else going?
And who are you rooting for?! Will Flightline stay healthy?
